We stayed in Calama just for one night because we visited the mine. Ayelen was a good option to stay. The double room was big, clean and had a private bathroom, a tv and a kitchenette. There was also a desk, a wardrobe and a iPod docking station. The bed was very comfortable. The place seemed to be very safe.... More

We stayed in an appart on two floors. We were four people and we needed some rest in our backpacking travel. We could cook some soup in the evening. The breakfast is really good. This was clean and nice. There's nothing to see in the city but a stay there is relaxing.

The room was nice and big with a kitchenette and all the dishes I could need. Nice bathroom as well. Great breakfast. Biggest complaint was that my balcony door was broken so I could not lock it and felt unsafe in the room. Also, the street where it is located is highly traversed so there were loud car sounds all...

I've stayed at the Ayelen many times in the las couple of years on business. The staff is friendly, the rooms are comfortable, they have parking spaces inside the hotel, the rooms are clean... all things that are not that common in Calama, and especially at their prices. I have recommended the hotel to coworkers several time and will continue... More

Reading the reviews on Trip Advisor has been pretty dead on, and no exception to The Ayelen Apart Hotel. I arrived not knowing what to expect and was extremely happy with the end result. My room was modern, fully furnished with a comfortable bed, a dividing wall housed the flat screen with all the channels would you care to have.... More

We stayed 1 night in this apart hotel. The staff is very friendly. However, the room itself has a lot of street noise from 6am onwards. Also the bathroom ventilation is very noisy. There's no curtain for one of the windows and the door to the hallway has a small window as well. It was therefore too much light in... More

After travelling in the Atacama desert for five days, the hotel was an oasis. The modern and clean room with a comfortable bed, TV, microwave, fridge... I was overjoyed. Wi-fi worked well. The lady at the reception was helpful. There was a safe parking. Nice photography exhibition. It was great.

Calama is a dusty town close to huge open pit copper mines. But the area has a natural beauty and well worth a visit. This Arart Hotel was a perfect place to stay. Situated a few blocks from the centre and very quite. Accommodation is a full on apartment with all facilities. Very modern, clean and bright. Lots of haot... More

I had booked a single room thru booking.com, 72 us$ per night. When I arrived I was told that the price was 35.000 pesos or 76us$ because of peso/dollar change. I told them that I have made the reservation with booking.com at 72 us$ and they must honour that price, so the girl at front desk told me that she... More
